Hippity ~ Hoppity, Easter Is On It's Way

Hippity ~ Hoppity
Easter is early this year.
Do you have your Easter bonnet ready?

Our days have been beautiful, 
and we are enjoying time on the terrace.

Spring is popping up around the
garden and in containers.

A flush of spring color 
is good for the soul.

Inside, I filled our MacKenzie-Childs Taylor 
compote with spring blooms from Trader Joe's.
I'll change it out to something lower for our meal.

I like to bring out our Taylor Ceramics in the spring.
They are the pieces that started my long time passion for the brand.
Plates bought one by one in the 1990s, and added to through
years since, make for happy, whimsical tabletops!
You can see our Taylor used on previous spring tables
herehere, and here.  

I paired the Taylor with our new velvet placemats 
and Easter linens from Crown Linen Designs 
and the large paper accent eggs from Hester and Cook.

I used the gray velvet with the 
yellow knife rest for my chef.

Pink for my place setting with the white bunny.
The rabbit knife rests are French faience from Malicorne.

Beautiful French cut crystal 
adds a touch of sparkle.

The petite MacKenzie-Childs rabbit and radish 
salt and peppers add a touch of whimsy.

The egg salt and peppers were an estate sale 
find that a friend in Dallas sent my way.

Individual charcuterie cones from a local restaurant, 
Spread, make a colorful appetizer.

This little "happy" was 
dropped off by a neighbor.

A bunny sweet treat is from local bakery,
Hayley's Cakes and Cookies.

Just two of us at the table, 
but we will enjoy a nice meal.

A meal at a table set with fine linens 
and whimsical dishes.

Happy Easter to all who celebrate!

Best wishes to all 
for a colorful spring!
